@brianmrosenthal @IrvingSwisher Also as @typesfast pointed out on the recent Odd Lots, this system of paying the port truckers by the container, as opposed to by the hour, is now contributing to bottlenecks, since in this economy those workers have better options. bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

This is frankly terrifying. *1 in 21* children of secondary school age had SARS-CoV-2 the wk ending 25th Sept. Rises continuing. Tell me again that schools don't 'drive' transmission and we don't need mitigations in schools. To all those who've been in denial - this is on you.
